Our advice is to set up that first face-to-face meeting before you allow any more water to pass under the bridge. When you get together, bring a list of questions for one another.
Maximize the usefulness of your time together by making an effort to get to know each other better.
We realize that this may seem a bit strained and awkward – after all, you'll both be operating in "agenda mode." But it's really the only way to get from where you are now to where you want to be.
We've both expressed an interest in exploring this relationship further, but so far we've never met in person.
Do you have any advice as to how we should proceed?
Have a wonderful time, but stay away from familiarity. A double date is when you and your date pair up with another couple.
A group date is when three or more couples participate in a date together. Not only does it make conversation easier, but there is always a lot more laughter when people pair up and go on group dates together.
As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we have high standards regarding LDS dating.
LDS youth are counseled to not date until they are at least 16 years old.
I'm in my mid-twenties and have developed a friendship with a young woman I met on the internet.
She lives in another state and we've talked quite a bit on the phone since then.
The chances for a happy, healthy temple marriage are much greater if you only date other Latter-day Saints who uphold the same standards.
Youth should avoid dating the same person too regularly.
Because of our high standards, we believe in only dating those who respect and keep the commandments of Jesus Christ.
